October 2008 in Our Mission

Beautiful Slovenia

After living here for three months, we finally took a day to drive around and explore Slovenia. Eric flew in for a visit on his Europe tour and our good friends the Forsbergs visited us from Sweden. They provided the excuse we needed to take a day to see some sights. We hope you enjoy the pictures.
